Usman Khawaja has scored 1,728 runs in 24 Tests for Australia, including five centuries

Australia’s Usman Khawaja says being racially abused as young players has stopped many overseas-born cricketers from playing for the country.

The 30-year-old, who was born in Pakistan, said such abuse culminated in him not supporting Australia teams.

“Getting sledged by opposition players and their parents was the norm,” said Khawaja
